To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent assessment her Department has made of Syrian co-operation with the International Independent Investigation Commission established pursuant to Security Council Resolutions 1559 (2005), 1636 (2005) and 1644 (2005). (124847)

The International Independent Investigation Commission produces quarterly reports on the progress of the investigations including on how Syria is co-operating with the Commission. The most recent report, dated 12 December 2006, stated that the co-operation of Syria with the Commission was timely and efficient. Earlier reports had highlighted difficulties with Syrian co-operation.

The UK continues to insist on Syria's "full and unconditional" co-operation as called for in Security Council Resolution 1559.
